Plot Summary

The upper class Pringles and middle class Fosters are two families living in Santa Barbara. Among widowed businessman Lucien Pringle's interests are a bank and a radio station, these and his other business interests which make him largely an absent figure from his children's lives. Melvin Foster owns and operates a seafood packing plant, it an offshoot of his days as a fisherman. Unlike Lucien, Melvin is an active part in his family's life. Sixteen year olds Judy Foster, Ogden Pringle (more casually called Oogie) and Oogie's sister Carol Pringle are seniors at the local high school, they who have known each other all their lives. Judy, the school's songbird, and Oogie, conductor of the school's orchestra, are musical collaborators and consider themselves more than just friends, while Judy and Carol are best friends, although Judy and Oogie are oblivious to Carol's actions being in her own best interest often at their expense. Events leading up to, at, and following the senior class dance have some major repercussions. On Carol's advice, Oogie ends up not taking Judy to the dance. Instead, she ends being escorted by Stephen Andrews at the last minute, he the nephew of the local druggist, "Pop" Scully. Stephen, a war veteran in town for the summer earning money for college as Pop's soda jerk, ends up being Judy's new object of desire, she unaware if it's solely to make Oogie jealous or if it's love in the form of idolization for an older man. Carol, too, falls for Stephen, she who does whatever she can to "steal" Stephen from Judy without Judy even knowing it. Stephen is aware of what is happening with the two friends, he who has his own choice, Carol, knowing full well of her entitled nature and the probable reason behind it. Oogie does whatever he can to win Judy back, his inexperienced self only following the advice given to him by others he trusts. What happens between the four is made all the more complicated by a misunderstanding regarding something Melvin wants to surprise his wife Dora with for their upcoming twentieth wedding anniversary party.
